"the new york times
says it cannot operate in what it calls a "climate filled with hatred." steve harrigan live in cairo at the moment with the latest developments. not very encouraging, steve. good morning. >> reporter: certainly not. in a blow to the egypt constitutional court. judges were going to meet today but the building they were going to meet in was surrounded by protesters in favor of the egypt president mohammed morsi. the judges were too concerned about trying to enter the building. they failed to do so. they said they would not meet anymore under the atmosphere of fear and intimidation. to an example of mob rule here. justices building surrounded and the justices failing to meet today. as far as the constitution, pushed through in one night, earlier in the week, it's now set to go to a referendum. nationwide vote on this. december 15. president morsi said those extreme powers which he adopted would be void. perhaps in two weeks time if the constitution is adopted. finally, another show of public support for the president, demonstrators came out here to the university of cairo yesterday. aga
unemployed. steve is live in washington. where do we stand at this point? >> reporter: two sides did do something today. they appeared on the sunday talk shows but they haven't negotiated an actual deal. john boehner blasted the white house plan which was put forward last week. boehner says the president essentially wasted the last three weeks since the election with nonsense. >> the president is asking for $1.6 trillion worth of new revenue over ten years, twice as much as he been asking for in public. stimulus spending that exceeded the amount of new cuts he was willing to consider. it was not a serious offer. >> reporter: and boehner says he was flabbergasted when he was given the proposal. >> heather: and democrats are defending themselves? >> treasury-secretary tim geithner on fox news defending the president's plan for raising revenues, cutting spending and reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over the next ten years. he said the ball is in the g.o.p.'s court. >> you have heard them for the first time i think in two decades they are willing to have revenues go up to make a balanced p
the new constitution that morsi's allies in the constituent assembly rushed through. >> steve, what is the army's role in all of this. that's the piece people don't understand. you have morsi, muslim brotherhood and others behind this constitution. liberals, secularists opposing it. where does the army stand? >> the military has essentially removed itself from the political system. the new military leadership that came into power in mid-august as a result of morsi's declarations have a deal with him. they were relieved of the burden of having to govern egypt. removing themselves from the political system is more in keeping with the history of the egypt armed forces since the 1967 defeat when they determined being a political army was not good for their organization and their ability to fight a war on the battlefield. >> when you look at the struggle, is it first of all essentially the islamist versus the secularist, and is it fair to say as everybody does the islamists have greater appeal, they're better organized, they're going to win this? >> i think it is, right now there are bas
they are not going anywhere unless and until the president cancels his plans to place himself above the law. steve hair tan live for news cairo. steve? >> shepard, this is really a new tactic for the opposition protesters. instead of simply staying here in tahrir square and chanting they went on offensive tonight toward the presidential palace. they got right to the compound walls until being tear gassed. it was reenergized the opposition. we have seen increase in recent days now they are out in full force. one factor to keep in mind about the demonstrations today, there were no serious injuries reported. despite the scenes of chaos, both sides evidently still using some restraint. next on the agenda of vote december 15th on a constitution heavily criticized as a rush job that favors islamist parties. it's clear the muslim brotherhood will try and get out a strong yes vote on that constitution. what's not clear is the opposition's tactics. will they try to get out a no vote or will they abstain considering the whole process unjust? shepard, back to you? >> steve harrigan live tonight in cairo. the
this year in 2012. they did that today. amazing. joining us is steve clemmons. he writes at the washington note and atlantic magazine. steve is also a former policy adviser for new mexico senator jeff bingaman. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you rachel. >> am i being naive to think this was going to pass? >> a lot of people thought it was going to pass. of all the treaties, this would be the easiest to pass. there were other treaties pending. this is about people in need and it didn't. this is a branch of the gop that did you want represent all republicans, but it's the obnoxious nationalist wing that really resents any international deal making. there's a lot of worry not just about people with disabilities, but all the other treaties that position the united states and show that it can be the primary sculptor of global affairs, and we're defecting from that as of today's vote. >> so 126 countries ratifying this, but us, not ratifying it. particularly when it's modeled on our law. that takes us out of a global leadership role? >> it leaves a void that the united states is w
today, and what is next is the big question. steve harrigan is streaming live from cairo with more. steve. >> reporter: we are ten days away from a admonition thal vote, a vote on the new draft constitution. we are seeing both sides really jocking for position and trying to demonstrate what power they have by the numbers of people they can bring out into the streets. yesterday for the first time last night we saw the opposition protestors, people who want to drive president morsi from office really go on the offensive. they marched through the presidential palace. they broke through steel gates and barbed wire, they painted graffiti on the walls of the compound. they did not try to over take those walls go into the compound itself where of course there are heavily armed guards. police continued to retreat throughout the demonstration last night and even though it seemed like there was chaos on the streets there were no reports of any serious injuries during that process, so both sides still showing some restraint. the latest reports from the scene say large-scale protests from supp
? >> steve, your question -- >> i'm and freeload, by the way. >> that by the way is how the chinese would describe any relationship between japan and america. the interesting aspect of all these conflicts is that as india and china and india and china have a proximate geographically, but we've never been neighbors. >> right. >> in order to be neighbors you either have to love each other or hate each other. we have done neither. in fact, in 1962 during the first strategic conflict, between these two, you have to understand, it's hard to understand why we are not neighbors. [inaudible] in terms of inaccessible. but the positions, the lines, the strategies, the lines, what would they resonate to? the positions that are taken by postcolonial nations is that we will not be bound by decisions made by colonial powers. one, or in china's case, that we had to abandon our national positions. and now that we are strong, we need to resurrect them. right or wrong is not, that is very little to do with national positions. now, the words that were there in the title of today's discussion, confusion, i c
the news wires. what we heard earlier from steve harrigan there is a situation developing outside the presidential palace. what the news wires are telling us is that some of the protestors that are protesting president mor morsi have broken through the police lines near the presidential palace and they are being met by teargas and opposition from the police. why the situation is one that we are continuing to watch so closely is whether or not the people in the streets, the demonstrations reach a level of violence, because the big question for the egyptian government is what is next here? if the people continue to protest the constitution put in place by the president, that may or may not be ratified in a few weeks, what is next for this country? so we'll continue to watch the developments out of cairo, egypt today, bring you updates as we get them. jon: the blue angels navy stunt flying seem seems to be channeling santa claus you might say using one of its cargo planes to fly donated toys out to the many families still reeling from the devastation of super storm sandy. jonathan se

( laughter ). i don't want to get into that. that wouldn't be a thing to do. >> jon: next time i'll make sure it's in the gift bag for everybody. ( laughter ). >> maybe just the cookies. >> jon: just the cookies. ( laughter ). so let me-- let me start with you. two years ago, two and a half years ago, you are aproasmed to chaiapproached tochair a commits to set up a deficit reduction plan for the country. you study it. you're very diligent. everybody hates it within 24 hours.
demanding he give up those near absolute powers. and steve harrigan is live for us in cairo. steve, these are the biggest crowds we have seen yet. >>reporter: the largest crowds and the most violent. it has calmed down in the last hour at 10:00 p.m. in egypt but the worst clashes in two weeks of protests here. it wasn't police versus the protester but civilian on civilian, members of the muslim brotherhood who support president morsi and those who want to drive him from office and all the conflict happening outside the presidential palace that began with pushing and sticks and rocks and molotov cocktails and shots fired. showing how bitterly the country is divided. >>trace: what do we know what is behind the violence? >>reporter: the first two weeks, antimorsi protesters met in that sure square and now they are marching on the palace. there has been a lost restraint on of the pro morsi supporters which restrain was broken after the man on the palace where the wall were written on with graffiti. they moved in with sticks, rocks and later gun battles in exactly what followed after th
adviser steve ratner and minnesota democratic congressman keith ellison with near glee. there is no real choice about that. we're clear social security is off the table. this is, to me, the much more interesting debate between tom and dan. >> you want republicans arguing. both sides are also battling for control of the debt ceiling which may represent the republicans' greatest point of leverage in these budget talks. goo the speaker of the house says that's a nonstarter. >> silliness. congress will never give up the power. i've made it clear to the president. we need cuts in reform greater than the increase in the debt limit. >> bottom line, you've got to put a detailed plan on the table that the white house ends up agreeing to some of it, rejects some of it in the same way the white house is arguably overplaying their hand on taxes. the question is whether you're going to see two full fledged plans be put on the table. republicans for now, including speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell both say, hey, all these plans are familiar to the white house. we shouldn't have to put them on the ta
of questions. steve brown has more in chicago with this. we heard a little bit of the 911 call before the break. how do those final moments play out at arrowhead stadium earlier on saturday morning? reporter: yes, let's put that into context. kasandra perkins was shot numerous times and fatally wounded by the father of their child. that is jovan belcher, who drove to arrowhead stadium, essentially to talk to two people. that would be head coach and general manager. neither of those two gentlemen have commented on how those final seconds played out. but police officer that was watching did watch those fateful seconds unfold. >> we have two coaches and one other employee here. [inaudible] reporter: in terms of a motive for the shooting, reportedly there was a moment country and argument about kasandra perkins's labor turn from a concert. jenna: in the meantime, what happens with the 3-month-old daughter, little zoey? reporter: in the meantime, family from austin, texas, are helping take care of her. his teammates also decided to set up a fund for zoey. >> we just want her to understand at one poi
by american banker and called the next steve jobs. we'll get to the bottom of that. the ceo joins us now. >> thanks for having me. >> since the last time i've seen you you've been on the cover of forbes as innovator of the year. >> i walked by the news stand and you were just getting square underway the last, right before we saw you last time on the show. and the things have changed dramatically. air now being called the innovator of the year and compared to steve jobs for your innovation. tell me how square is changing the face of american business? >> we start with a simple idea which was, you know, my parents were entrepreneurs. they started up local businesses and my father started a pizza restaurants when he was a kid and my mother the coffee store and they face the challenges just starting up. and also accepting patients extremely challenges, so we made it easy for any small business or neighborhood place it instantly accept credit cards by giving them a free credit card reader and accept credit cards for 2.75% and we signed up over 3 million merchants. >> i have to say when i went
the wealthy folks at the tax breaks. it wasn't tied to inflation, now it's getting the middle class. steve and alexander, virginia commuter next. >> caller: i have had to be in the minority that thinks the amt is a good thing because it arbitrarily raises the taxes on folks and government programs have to be paid for. i'm really intrigued with mr. buckley's statement that there is going to be chaos if the amt is permitted to go forward or that it's not patched in 2012. what chaos is going to happen? people will have to pay more taxes and it's not as if everyone is sitting around their tax offer right now, anticipating what their taxes are going to be. it's basically individuals will be hit with a tax bill, which is going to be calculated and quite frankly more simplified form than the standard tax law. >> host: professor buckley. >> guest: when i say chaos, i am referring to two things. first, the irs has done all of its internal programming based on the assumption that there would be an amt patch enacted by the end of the year. that would be a fairly large undertaking by the irs to change
